Army Build


The start of an interesting journey...

Hello.Welcome.Let's get the show on the road...This week has been a week of all sorts of things...First of all, my son (and his girlfriend) was visiting and I got to see him a bit while he was in town. It is always good to see him when he visits because he's his own man now and we have a good understanding now. He is still enjoying life in the RAF and I am still immensely proud of him. It was particularly nice to have a family dinner with My son, his girlfriend, our daughter and us... I am now looking forward to the next visit.As I mentioned last week, I started a few shadow shifts, at the care home, this week but I ended up phoning them because I was waiting for the call... but it didn't come. I think that there were crossed wires and we were both expecting to be called. Anyway... I have now shadowed an early shift and a late shift and already know that I have made the right choice in my career direction... the care system needs all the help it can get.I have shadowed some lovely people and have been able to

The wind has changed direction.

Hello and welcome to Inso's World again.This week has been fairly interesting so I'll get straight to it...My wife braved the shave... (the week before last... but I failed to mention it in my last blog post) and has so far raised nearly £400 for MacMillan Cancer Support, which is very cool. Her charity page is still up and now shows a 'before and after' so pop along and please donate if you can:Brave the Shave LINKOn the job front, I have now passed all the checks and should be starting work this coming week. I will be shadowing a Health Care Assistant for the week before going for my induction training the following week so things are really getting interesting now. I know that the first few months will be tough because it's all new to me, it's a particularly demanding job and I have been away from a job for nearly two years. I have a feeling that Inso is going to be a very tired chap! I am really looking forward to it and can't wait to get started.I have finally got my medals sorted out. I sent them off th

Space Knights?

Hello and welcome to Inso's World again.This week has been a bit of a "hurry up and wait" week. I have been fidgety because I am waiting for my job application to run its course and I haven't really heard much; apart from a couple of my references getting in touch to say that they had been contacted... so things are progressing but at their own pace.I have pottered around a lot this week but haven't really achieved very much. Yes, I have done my chores and got what needed to be done, done... but really, I have felt a bit in limbo. It has been a bit of a "coulda, woulda, shoulda" week.Hobby wise, I haven't really got much done either. I bought another couple of Warhammer Conquest (issue 1) copies because they were on 'last day of sale' and have been chopping one one of the Primaris Marines up, to see if I can turn it into a Demiurg Subterranean Guilder... but haven't got very far. I have even started assembling a  couple and painting them as they are... which hasn't got very far either. In fact... the onl

The times, they are a changin'...

Hello again and welcome to Inso's World on a lovely sunny, if rather blustery, day.This week has been... interesting.I'll start off with hobby stuff... and this week has been solely geared towards my Demiurg project. As is usually the case, a chance happening has distracted me away from my Squat project and my attention has been fully turned towards Demiurg... on this occasion it was a mix of insanely cheap miniatures and the new Warhammer, part-work, magazine. With that aside... I have fully painted three Air Guilders for my Demiurg project:Click the Pic!As with the Earth Guilders, there is a Controller, Leader and Mechanic (from left to right) but they are a different colour to mark them as a separate guild. To go with these Demiurg, I have been assembling and painting some drones that I got from the Warlord Summer Sale (which I have mentioned over the last couple of weeks). These aren't finished but are most certainly getting there:Click the Pic!In the picture there are four large drones and eight smaller

The day of the Badger.

Hello and welcome to Inso's World on another dreary Sunday.Life has been and gone this week (biking, shopping, chores, paperwork...) ... so I'll get straight on with some hobby stuff.To kick things off, one of my orders have arrived from the Warlord sale (12 Ghar Battle-Suit Sprues) and the other order (Concorde Sprues) was marked as dispatched yesterday so it should be here over the next few days (allowing for the bank holiday on Monday). I am looking forward to seeing what the Concorde troops look like and will most probably be distracted if they are of a suitable size for conversion... but I guess that we will have to wait and see there. I can safely say that the drones will be spot on because quite frankly, I won't be buying any others so they will HAVE to be. Here are some links to the sprues I have ordered (each sprue was £1.00 during the sale):Ghar BombersGhar Close CombatConcorde Troops and DronesIn other hobby news, I found myself distracted by talk of Rough Rider conversions and for no reason whatso

The platoon is growing.

Hello again and welcome to Inso's World on a lovely, foggy day.This is currently the view from my window:Click the Pic!It's definitely different to last weekend... Hopefully, it will disappear and we'll get some sun again.Back on track... this week has been one of travels and a bit of hobby so we'll start with travels.My missus has had a bit of a holiday and we have been pottering around and doing everything she wanted to. We have been to the Cornish Seal Sanctuary, Pendennis Castle, Trebah Garden and have also traveled up to see my Step Mum in Seaton. While we were there we went for a lovely ride on the Seaton Tram system and had lunch on Colyton station. In lesser travels, we have also been to see Ant Man and the Wasp at the cinema. I was also (thankfully) left at home when my missus went to see the second Mama Mia film with my niece so that was a bullet dodged. We have also pottered about in town and spent some quality time together so this has been a good week.On Monday, I had a bit of official duty
